PreS-Gr 1—Dax and Zoe are inseparable twins who are about to start school. But Dax and Zoe aren't so sure about it, since starting kindergarten will mean being in different classes. With the help of their parents and each other, they find the courage to go their separate ways on the first day of school. Then with the help of teachers and new friends, Dax and Zoe soon realize that despite being apart from each other, kindergarten isn't so bad. Simple but attractive color pencil illustrations depict the action and emotions equally well. The writing is direct and effective, and the story adeptly depicts a challenging time for most families.
VERDICT This heartwarming tale is perfect for storytimes, and an excellent choice for families with young twins.
